I really dont know very much about my Simmon/Perkins/Harper ancestors but would like very much to see if I have any possible relatives online with any information. I can go back 5 generations and as far as I know they were all in Miss. at this time..
Sam Perkins ..Married to Mary Simmons Perkins..I have a note that Sam may have been a twin of John Perkins but have been unable to verify that as of yet
Sam and Mary's Daughter Nancy Elizabeth Perkins Harper.. married Lawrence Henry Harper
Nancy and Lawrence Henry Harper's daughter was Bonnie Dee Harper Adcox married to Clyde Adcox (resided in Louisiana at their time of death)
Bonnie Harper Adcox and Clyde T. Adcox's son was my father Henry G. Adcox also was in Lousiana at his time of death..
All I really remember are stories that I may have mixed up..I think the Perkins and Harper's were both preachers..One Methodist and one Baptist.
I am showing Lawrence Henry Harper and Henry Hern Harper..I think Nancy Elizabeth was married to Lawrence Henry...
I know I had some kin in Columbus Ga. "Harper's"...That would be my great Uncle HM and Aunt Frances Harper's family(Bonnie Dee's brother)..Theyboth retired from civilian employment at Ft. Benning Ga..One of my fondest memories stem form there..My brther and I were very small tots and it was Easter..We woke in Columbus Ga. at g/grandmother Harper's only to find the Easter Bunny had not come to see us..We were devastated..UNTIL we found out that in Ga. the Easter Bunny comes OUTSIDE...All the eggs were hidden in a beautiful garden in the back yard..I will cherish that memory..Not long after this my brother died from a brain tumor..So you can imagine how precious this memory is..SMILE...
If any of this rings familiar to you please send me a message..
Most relatives as far as I know where in Miss..They were caucasian or Indian decent...
I have a good bot of Adcock/Adcox family info thanks to a distant cousin on the internet but I am posting under Adcox hoping the other generations may see a something familiar and can assist in helping me with the other ancestry names..Simmons/Perkins/Harper..
